YORK HAVEN, Pa.: Scott Gobrecht and Kolten Gouse had a three-prong process heading into another important offseason at BAPS Motor Speedway.
The top priority was safety upgrades to the facility. Next was putting together the best possible schedule for its racing divisions. Finally, but not any less important, the management team wanted to increase sponsorship.
Each area goes hand and hand for the overall success of the speedway. And it looks like it’s going to be another good year for the York Haven facility.
Gobrecht and Gouse have signed Drydene Performance Products to be the official Oil, Lubricant, and Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) provider at the speedway. The Jonestown, Pa., company will also sponsor three races at the facility.
“We are excited to partner with BAPS Motor Speedway as the official motor oil and official Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) supplier for the 2019 season,” said Al Johnson, Drydene Performance Products Marketing Director. “The track continues to position itself as one of the finest facilities, not only in central Pennsylvania, but across the United States.
“This is a great opportunity for the track personnel and racers to use our products while also connecting with the fans, teams, and drivers who are part of the diverse schedule of races. We are looking forward to a fun season together.”
Drydene will sponsor the April 5 show at the speedway, which will feature $5 admission into the grandstands. The performance products company will also sponsor events on Sept. 19 and Sept. 21.
The Sept. 19 program is a special Thursday Night Thunder event featuring the 410 and 358 Sprint Cars. Two nights later, Drydene will sponsor the prestigious Crowning of Champions for the speedway’s main divisions.
“We have been busy this offseason with new additions to the facility, as well as securing sponsorship partners that we can build a relationship for the future,” said Kolten Gouse, General Manager at BAPS Motor Speedway.
“Drydene Performance Products has such a great passion for local short-track racing, and to partner with a national brand company in our back yard is huge for the speedway, our race teams, and fans.
“It’s an honor to partner with Drydene Performance Products in 2019, and we are looking forward to having them be a part of the speedway for years to come.”
